that the u.n. commission of inquiry on syria's chemical weapons attack quote, points to the fact that evidence indicates responsibility at the highest level of government, including head of state. i know that the u.n. report did not say who was responsible. >> u.n. commissioner was talking about war crimes in general, specifically excluded the gas issue. because they had no information about it. they're not allowed, the u.n., presumably, to make a statement about who did what. they can say that there was a gas attack, but they don't want -- by commission, i guess, they're not allowed to say who did it. i don't know why. because i think there's a lot of evidence to be made available. there is sarin, it was used. the sarin that the syria army has has a different chemical component than the sarin that would be made by the front because the army is more sophisticated, has certain additives. certainly someone has looked at that. i don't know why they don't talk about the sarin they have and whether it shows it came from the army or did not. the other thing one could say is the preside
the vatican refused a u.n. panel information about the church's investigation into sexual abuse of children by the clergy. is there still some secrecy behind what it is that they're discovering? >> reporter: well, the vatican today did respond to a similar question. they said that this u.n. panel wants to go back to 1990 and wants the details of every single instance of abuse by a member of the clergy worldwide, and the church said that they can't be held responsible for every member of the church around the world. but their attitude is, they're looking forward, as far as this commission goes, not going back into the past to deal with this issue. >> hopefully some comfort to those who were victim to all of that. ben, thanks so much. ben wedeman in rome. >> certainly hope to get some answers to those looking for more answers from the church. >>> back here in the united states, chances are you're either dealing with extreme heat or really wondering what this winter's all about. >> it's crazy. >> cold, wet, hot. atlanta is like -- >> it's 70 here in atlanta, redig lutz. >> love it. >> have a l
of inspection regimes and international sanctions and u.n. resolutions that were in place. we have been able to craft an international effort and verification mechanism around the iran nuclear program that is unprecedented and unique. that doesn't mean it's easy, and that's why we have to take it seriously. but i think one of the things that i have repeatedly said when people ask why should we try to negotiate with them, we can't trust them, we're being naive, what i try to describe to them is not the choice between this deal and the ideal, put the choice between this deal and other alternatives. if i had an option, if we could create an option in which iran eliminated every single nut and bolt of their nuclear program and foreswore the possibility of ever having a nuclear program and for that matter got rid of all its military capabilities, i would take it. but -- sorry, i want to make sure everybody understands, that particular option is not available, so as a consequence, what we have to do is make a decision given the options available, what's the best way to assure iran does not get a n
of state. that's not to mention if the 80 eminent people the ed of the eu or the u.n. logistically, very difficult. in terms of mandela, you know, what a man. i saw him many times. he had connections with gadhafi and castro. he really didn't care weather people were in favor in the western world or whether they were popular. he was very, very principled in the fact that if gadhafi, if the libyans or the cubans had given assistance to the anc in times of trouble, he felt loyal. he was very loyal to his friends. he would show the friendship back. what you are going to see is a mismatch of people. hemowho are celebrities, naomi campbell known for her temper and being a hot headed model sitting next to perhaps the head of iran. you know? there's a wonderful image when you can see about tomorrow. i think that is mandela as his p.a. said today, he's bringing people toothing in death as well as he did in life. >> we're looking at pictures of mandela dancing. he was somebody who celebrated life, as well, bringing so many people together. you just can't help but. >> i will and be inspired when yo
the tributes after ban ki-moon, the u.n. secretary general speaks, the tribute by foreign dignitaries, then the president of the united states, barack obama, followed by the leaders of brazil, china and india and then cuba. raul castro. they will all be on this little stage, this little area in front of 90,000 people who have gathered in the soccer stadium so there could be a moment where president obama and raul castro may shake hands, may talk, who knows. >> be interesting to watch if they shake hands. that was the big thing, the gore people wanted no physical contact or substantive communications because of the relationship between the two countries. obviously, you can get as close as we are at an event like that and we will see what happens. you watch something like that. for the former presidents to be together, you know this because you have been at big events, the opening of presidential libraries here at home, the king hussain funeral, you had a group like that. the pope john paul ii funeral, you had several presidents together. it's a security challenge, number one, then the
they give no credibility to this report whatsoever. they said, quote, pela who is the u.n. human rights chief has talked to, quote, nonsense in the past and they are sort of trying to brush this off but it is something will carry a lot of weight internationally. the united states nations head of human rights wants to take syria to the international criminal court and that would be something that would up the ante considerably, zoraida. >> thank you very much. frederik pleitgen reporting live for us in damascus. >>> allen gross was in prison four years ago in cuba. now in a new letter he appeals for president obama to personally intervene in his case saying extraordinary steps have been taken for other americans. the letter will be delivered today. part of a new strategy by his family to put direct pressure on the white house. a copy was given to "the washington post." >>> major snowstorm is set to hit part of the country! >> i know. it doesn't feel that like here. it's warm here. >> it is. indra petersons is covering that for us. >> i want to give you a jump-start. >> this is bad news?
2011. a u.n. fact finding team has found what it calls massive evidence that the highest levels of the syrian government are responsible for war crimes, and crimes against humanity. >> the u.n. report also blames the rebels for committing war crimes. and they point to the fact that the majority of syrian victims have been killed and wounded by conventional weapons and not chemical ones. >> to finds out how you can help those affected by this civil war, check out cnn.com/impact your world. >> let's turn to russia now where moscow's bolshoi ballet has long represented grace and culture but a horrific attack happened that sounds more like a tragic play and the drama that's played out more like an opera than ballet. a dancer and two others charged with throwing acid in the face of the bolshoi's artistic director. sergei filin. now as atika schubert reports those attackers just found out how much time they're going to serve. >> this is the home of the world famous bowl shoil ballet company and the scene for numerous allegations of corruption and scandal that will unfolded over the co
seem like the administration has given up something they shouldn't be gig up. >> this violates the u.n. security council resolutions, the u.n. proliferation treating and empowers other countries in the northeast to say we're going to strike an accord to allow you to continue your uranium enrichment and it encourages other countries to say we've abided by this and if you allow iran to do this, why can't we do this? >> we didn't stop pakistan. we didn't stop north korea. the idea that iran can be stopped if they want to make a nuclear weapon seems to not have a great historic precedent. >> they have the know-how. they're always going to have the know-how. what would it take if they make the decision that they're going to pursue the bomb? it would take a sustained military campaign. not just a bombing campaign because a bombing campaign would set them back for a period of time, but if they were determined, it would have to be repeated bombing campaign and it may involve boots on the ground. because that is often an awful prospect, we need to try everything, in my view, to see if that he i

: former u.n. ambassador bill richardson who says his north korean contacts aren't responding told cnn on sunday that kim jong-un isn't following north korea's usual pattern of releasing americans after getting a purported confession. >> so this is baffling. but this is a new regime of the new leader. and i suspect he's sending different signals but nobody knows what those signals are. >> richardson has some of the best contacts in this country with north korean leaders. so the fact that they're not responding is of some concern. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. >> still to come here on "around the world," a group of wounded veterans trekking across antarctica and they've got a british royal in tow. we'll check in on them and also, it could be life imitating art. police told cnn that the "fast and furious" actor paul walker may have been drag racing when he died in that car crash. we'll have details for you coming up next. so, with chevy's black friday sale, the price you see is the price you pay? yep, best prices of the year. i can't see. honey.

. in fact, tonight at the u.n. security council not far from where we are now, they are calling a moment of silence to remember and to honor him. he was the most incredible leader for our time, especially as we know, the possibility of violence, of division, of paralysis and partisanship, he really was able to overcome that and his long walk to freedom has benefited the whole world and how ironic it is that the film of his own biography is coming out right now. there are premieres right now, last week in the kennedy center in washington, tonight in london, where his own daughter has been, and there is so much now that is coming out for people to be able to read and to reflect and to pause and remember just what gift this amazing man gave to the world. i interviewed f.w. de clerk, who was his partner in the end and the dismantling of apartheid, one of the world's most violent racist regimes that endured for so long, a
a point this violates a u.n. security treaty and empowers other countries to say we're going to strike an accord with you to allow you to continue your uranium enrichment. all that does is encourage other countries within the middle east to say we abided by this. but if you allow iran to do this, then why can't we do this? that's my concern. >> right. we didn't stop pakistan. we didn't stop north korea. so the idea that iran can be stopped if they want to make a nuclear weapon seems to not have a great historic president dent. >> you know, they have the know how. what will it take if they're going to pursue the bomb? it would take a sustained military campaign, not just a bombing campaign. a bombing campaign would set them back for a period of time. but if they were determined, it would have to be repeated bombing campaign and may include boots on the ground. because that is such an awful prospect, we need to see if there is a peaceful way to put an end to this program. that's why i think the interim deal makes sense. i share the skepticism that we can get to a final deal. >> the chanc
